Thanks for the great suggestions, Jeff!

I've written up demo software, called "ponyshow":


It's mostly just a key-typer - a wrapper around xautomation's xte - so
it can do anything you could do by typing at your command line.That
way it can demo everything from pyglet to Jython.  Heck, you could
even demo Ruby with it (ssshhhh).  *nix-only.

Ponyshow comes with a show.txt to run that is going to be expanded
like crazy by Ohio LinuxFest (Oct. 11).  Anybody who wants to
contribute exciting/instructive code snippets or small programs, I'll
be delighted to include them.
